PANDORA has launched a new Rock-infused Country channel, “COUNTRY GRIT.” Core artists on the new station include CODY JINKS, WARREN EIDERS, WHISKEY MYERS, CHRIS STAPLETON, MIRANDA LAMBERT and AARON LEWIS. Other names heard on the playlist since its launch include BAILEY ZIMMERMAN, TYLER BRADEN, PARKER McCOLLUM and MORGAN WADE.
MCA NASHVILLE’s PARKER McCOLLUM is the latest addition to APPLE MUSIC’s “Up Next” artist program, an initiative aimed to showcase rising artists. Each month, APPLE MUSIC’s editorial team selects a rising artist to promote on the platform. The artist program includes an APPLE MUSIC short film, an interview with one of the APPLE MUSIC RADIO hosts, a performance on ABC’s “JIMMY KIMMEL Live!” and more to introduce and raise awareness about the up-and-coming artist to APPLE MUSIC listeners.
